§ Mr. FENBY
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he is aware that there are now about 5,000 refugees in the Tangier international zone, and that the funds at the disposal of the British Red Crescent Society for the maintenance of these people are now practically exhausted; and whether he will consider bringing the condition of these people to the notice of the Powers signatory to the Tangier convention with a view to joint action for their relief?
Relief work at Tangier is a matter for the newly-created international administration, and His Majesty's Government regret that they do not think they can properly take action in the sense suggested.
§ Mr. FENBY
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he has any information showing that Spanish troops have again fired on natives in the Tangier international zone; and whether His Majesty's Government, as a signatory Power to the Tangier Convention, will use their influence to prevent a recurrence of events of this kind?
I would refer the hon. Member to the answer given on the 15th of June to the hon. Member for Bright-side (Mr. Ponsonby).
